... I think that testing at many labs is your best option. Because Lyme testing is so grossly inaccurate (even Igenex is not perfect)...and I have seen the Top Lyme doctors--and most agree--if we were to take the whole world and test them for Lyme...most would have "some bands"---this doesnt mean everyone has Lyme disease, it just means that the tests are inaccurate. So how do we... (32 replies)
